Way back in 2004, Pixar released arguably their best film, The Incredibles. Directed by Brad Bird, this equal parts heartwarming and thrilling look at a family of superheroes, The Incredibles would go on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film in 2005. Fans have been waiting not-so-patiently for a sequel ever since, watching Cars get multiple spinoffs when we really just wanted to see more of Baby Jack Jack’s powers. Finally, a decade later, Bird confirmed that The Incredibles 2 was for real, truly happening, and would be hitting theaters in 2019, fifteen year’s after the original’s release.
However, fans got a bit of great news today, when Variety reported that we would be getting The Incredibles 2 on June 15, 2018, a full year before it was originally slated. There is one bit of bad news for fans of Woody and Buzz, though: that was originally the release date for Toy Story 4, which has now been pushed back to 2019. Toy Story 3 is Pixar’s highest grossing film to date with $1.1 billion worldwide and taught children how to accept death, but it’s only fair for the Parr family to get their second adventure. To all the Lightning McQueen acolytes out there (if there are, why?), you’ll be getting Cars 3 in 2017.
